America’s Horse and Professional’s Choice are sponsoring the Your Horse, Your Hero essay contest, ending November 10.

The American Quarter Horse Association

Tell us why your American Quarter Horse is your hero, and you could win a Professional’s Choice prize package.

The Your Horse, Your Hero essay contest, sponsored by AQHA Corporate Partner Professional’s Choice and America’s Horse, gives you the chance to honor the special American Quarter Horse in your life. Enter the contest, before November 10, and you could win a Professional’s Choice prize package.

Horses can take on many roles, whether it’s as a teammate who’s always up for anything, a confidante who never tells any of our secrets or a therapist whose soothing presence helps us through our darkest days. There are many reasons why our horses can become our heroes, but we want to hear your reason.

To enter the essay contest, submit a short story about your horse, as well as a photo. The essays will be judged on the heroic qualities of the horses and on the strength of the horse-human relationships.

  • Must be an AQHA member

  • Resident of the United States

  • Nominated horses must be registered Quarter Horses.
